Alaina's New Chalkboard


We got the chalkboard done. Alaina loves it! Everyday she's been coloring pics for mommy and daddy. When Bella gets older, her and sissy can play school and what not. I'm so glad we made it for her.

It's just chalkboard paint from Home Depot and I bought the one you can tint different colors. I had them tint it grape fizzy. Then I took the frame off of our previous livingroom pic and painted it hot pink. Very simple!

She loves it

Ethan even enjoyed coloring Auntie A a pic. If you decide to make one, just make sure you put on enough coats (we did 5 coats) and allow it to sit for 3 days. Luckily, my hubby reads the directions lol. :)
